Colors ruled fall/winter 2013 runways, from classic primary hues like red and blue to pretty pastels like lavender (Not surprised since we saw so many black & white this spring/summer). Today’s featured ladies rocked this color trend in two totally different ways:

Colors, gingham, lace, cut-outs are all in one outfit? Sounds busy, but Olivia Palermo nailed it by keeping the color palette simple. This outfit (above left) is trendy and glamorous, great for the coming holiday parties.

Natalia Vodianova’s take (above right) on red blazer followed the classic model’s off-duty way: teaming it with perfect fit skinny jeans, sexy black pumps and a classic quilted bag. Mixing one trend with our oldies and goodies is always a smart way to look chic & current without trying too hard.

今年春夏看了那么多黑白色,一定渴望来点色彩吧。这个秋冬明亮的饱和色比如经典的正红色、宝蓝色和柔和的马卡龙色正流行,从 Olivia Palermo 和超模 Natalia Vodianova的这两个look中学学怎么搭配吧。

色彩、蕾丝、格纹以及透视等这些流行元素如果同时出现在一个look里,听起来很不搭,但Olivia Palermo保持整身色调相对简单(经典的黑白与红色)让这些看似冲突的元素成了协调前卫的组合,派对穿时尚抢眼又性感。

Natalia Vodianova则选择了经典的超模街拍look:把流行的新欢和衣橱中经典又实穿的旧爱搭在一起,经典的菱格纹包合身的牛仔裤性感又百搭的黑色尖头鞋我们一定都有,加件最流行的外套就有了随意又体现时尚品味的造型,无论是彩色的西装外套飞行员夹克还是可可呢大衣

Gingham Chic: Trendy Accessories & Classic Staples

My fondness for anything gingham was literally revived when I spotted this photo from Vogue. Since Gustav III first created gingham as a style for interiors back to 18th century, this simple, minimalist print that combined Rococo with Neo-Classicism never goes out of style. Today, I featured two of my current favorite looks incorporated gingham, hope they inspire you to update yours.

Unlike the born-with-it modern vibe of stripes, gingham naturally has a retro, country flair. To make it fresh, style it with your favorite basic staples, be it skinny jeans, leather leggings, black cashmere sweater or sharp blazer, then spice up the whole look with trendy accessories, like the white cut-out pump and lace-up Oxford on today’s featured stars, both very of-the-moment.

These two looks are easy to adopt and very versatile: add a well-tailored jacket to SJP’s outfit, or change Olivia Palermo’s Oxford to a classic black pump, then add a structured tote, you can easily transform these two casual chic looks to polished, office-ready outfits.
